has this ever happened to your cat?

My cat had the wierdest experience this morning, she was running around and I noticed she had a piece of string on her backside about 3 inches long, I figured that she had sat on it and that it had stuck to her so I grabbed it to pull it off of her and about 6 more inches came out from inside her butt, apparently she had eaten the string and was passing it, I have been around cats all my life and have NEVER seen anything like this before, have any of you ever experienced anything like this before?

I did years ago with Pepper but she had to be operated on as it had twisted around her gut. See was lucky I was told as if I had waited much longer, she could have died.

Buffy LOVES to eat string (fortunately she hasn't eaten any in a while). Once she got into dental floss and some of it was trailing out of her butt, stained brown from poop. My sister stepped on it and it came out, which you aren't supposed to do (if they're still in the intestines, you'll cut them up), but fortunately there was only about an inch in her butt, so no harm.

I'm glad my girl did'nt get hurt, I never would have pulled it out if I would have known that it was inside her.

Didn't happen to my Kassity and I never heard of that before. But I hear of other strange things that some cat's had a bad experience with. Like eating a rubber band and it came out fine but one poop was at one end and another one in the other on the rubber band. Poor kitty...

This happened to my kitten tammy earlier this summer. It freaked me out as I knew I couldn't/shouldn't pull it out by it was bugging me so bad that I wanted to!
It finally came out on it's own!

Yikes! I've heard your NEVER supposed to pull it in case it's stuck up in them, it could hurt them.

Glad your baby's okay.

I have seen it. In fact my BIL and SIL's cat is nicknamed Tinsel Butt. Thank goodness she wasn't hurt and they never use tinsel anymore.

How much did that surgery cost and did they operate on her the same day?
